california are on strike. it is the first big strike at any refinery in 35 years, ktvu alex savage is live at the refinery in martinez where workers are helping safely shut down the plant before they start walking picket lines. >> good morning to you. the picket lines won't be going up here at this facility in martinez until some time later this week, that's because a lot of those workers are still on duty, they are in the process of safely shutting plant down, it is a very slow process, we're outside in martinez, this is one of nine refineries that will be impacted by this strike and we have not seen the strike like this in quite some time. the first refinery strike since 1980. the united steal workers called for the work stoppage. and in texas, washington state, and kentucky. after workers here at the refinery in martinez wrapped up their shifts last night their union told them not to return until a new contract is agreed
upon, workers say this strike is about a lot more than just money, they are also concerned about job safety issues, working conditions, under staffing, and fatigue. >> national was willing to continue talking even beyond the midnight deadline, industry walked away and was unwilling, basically left them no option. now certain refineries affected by this strike will stay open using nonunion labor. there is a concern how this will impact gas prices, whether prices will go up here if there is a ripple affect. it could spread to other refineries around california. that's the concern they produce our state's special blend of gas so that could impact gas prices, united steal workers also represent employees at the near by shell facility also richmond chevron plant those workers right now are on day to
day contracts during the strike the plant will continue taking in shipments of crude oil, also be storing oil and shipping out what has already been refinedded. production should be winding down and halted by thursday in all likelihood, that's when we'll likely see the picket lines right there. another story we'll stay on top of through the the week. the super bowl, the new england patriots are super bowl champs 10 years after their last title. pass is intercepted at the goal line by malcolm butler! >> are you kidding me? the seahawks, quarterback russell wilson was intercepted by rookie malcolm butler. they won 28-24. they came back after being down by 10.

about the added run later in the morning, most of them didn't know about this new ferry that would be leaving at 8:45. that makes a total of eighttrips for the morning rush. this is really an effort to curb some of that over flow. many tell us an increase in service is good but doesn't really affect them. >> they start work early, get in, get here early take it in. coming home in the evening, it depends on which time you take it. different times i've taken it, 5:30, 6:00, 5:00. >> the new run will replace a back-up bus service, expected to attract 100 new passengers and will have new revenue for the ferry. and it will be tested out for nine months, depending how successful it is it could become permanent. back to you. thank you, tara. time is 6:06.

facility, though, for another couple of days that's because union workers are still on duty slowly in the process of shutting this down, it is not an easy process, they need to do this before they walk off the job. this is the first refinery strike since 1980. the united steal workers called for the work stoppage, picket leans up at tesoro refineries in texas, and kentucky as well. this is a lot more than money, they are concerned about working conditions, under staffing, and fatigue. now certain refineries affected by the strike will stay open using nonunion labor and managers, but there is still a concern about rising fuel prices, especially if the strike spreads to other refineries around california which produced our state's unique blend gas.
>> gas prices? gas prices going up? bad for me. >> the prices will go up on the fuel, any excuse they can find. the united steal workers union represents employees here at the shell facility in martinez, richmond plant as well. those workers are on day to day contracts and have not yet gone on strike. during this work stoppage, it will continue to take in crude oil and ship out what has already been refined but again production is expected to be halted later on this week likely by this coming thursday, dave, that's when we will in all likelihood begin to see picketlines outside of this plant. boy this could be interesting. we'll talk to you later thank you. this morning new england patriots fans are celebrating the team's big super bowl victory. >> pass is intercepted at the

the end by a scuffle, they were taking a knee to run up the clock when they flagged this brawl. gronkowski was also in the middle of things, irvin and fans hit the streets, celebrating the patriot's big win . i heard you! after the patriot's won people poured out of the bar into the streets, the temperatures in boston was 12 degrees, but people hit the streets, police were everywhere, fans waving their patriots flags and chanting, we won the super bowl! >> i'm over the moon right now, i cannot believe it. it's -- that is the best super bowl me and my friends, it was a tough loss, exciting game, we were happy to be here. >> just after midnight, the boston police department

take place in san francisco, even though the big game will be held in santa clara. hotels are getting reservations for that weekend. the hotel saint francis has booked 80% of its rooms. there are sponsors who want to host events in the city. >> there will be hospitality programs and packages that will allow out of town travelers, take advantage of the hotels that they'll contracted already. demand may be so great it is possible people may even consider renting out their houses in glendale arizona luxury homes being rented out for fans that wanted something different than a hotel. one went $100,000 for a whole week, something 49ers fans will be hoping for is the team will make it to the big game, there's never been a team playing for the super bowl, the 49ers came close, they did play in 1985 but it was held at
